Amy Trotter of MUCC is my first guest this week. Amy talks about the recent turmoil on the Michigan Natural Resource Commission. She’s disappointed that politics is playing a major role in deciding the fate of NRC commissioners, but says the NRC is still a viable commission.

Then, Ben Nielsen of Showspan joins me to talk about the upcoming Outdoorama show in Novi.

The hour wraps up with Tom Campbell of Woods-n-Waternews. Tom talks about how that publication continues to thrive after more than three decades.

We’re talking turkey in the second hour this week with Chet Loar of Star Creek Guide Service. Chet has great advice on how to be successful this season.

Capt. Mel Stackpoole of Great Lakes Charter Training joins me next. Mel talks about his company’s classes to help folks get their charter charter captain’s license.

The hour wraps up with my “Ask Avery” segment. This time I’m talking about my turkey hunting set up.

Fishing guide and charter captain Paul Schlafley of Riverside Charters is featured in the final hour this week. Paul talks about wintertime steelheading and what to expect from the springtime fishery. He also gives some insight on what it’s like to be a charter captain and how he handles the pressure to consistently catch fish.

Chef Dave Minar wraps it all up. This week he has a very nice squirrel recipe.

I hope you like the show.
